Here is your answer! And a recipe for 100 guests :)

SPAGHETTI AND MEAT-SAUCE FOR 100
Makes 22 quarts sauce

1 1/3 cups olive oil
12 cups minced onion (24 medium onions)
24 cloves garlic, minced
6 lbs ground beef
6 lbs ground pork
24 cans (1 lb 12 oz each) plum tomatoes
8 cans (15 1/2 oz each) tomato puree
12 bell peppers, seeded and chopped
4 cups fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
6 tsp each dried thyme, oregano, and basil
3 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
3 tsp ground black pepper
17 lbs spaghetti (uncooked)

You will need 3 (16 qt) stock pots.

After assembling all ingredients divide into thirds.

Heat oil in pots over med-low flame, add onion and garlic, saute until golden.

Add meats, stir frequently to break up, cook until lightly browned.

Add remaining ingredients (except spaghetti) and simmer uncovered for approx. 4 hours or until thick. Sauce should be stirred often.

Spaghetti can be made early, cook it slightly underdone, drain and plunge into cold water, drain and refrigerate. Just before serving bring pot of water to full boil, add spaghetti, heat for 3-4 minutes (test), and drain.
